Quoting Quiverfull: So If You’re Humble & Godly Enough the Abuse Will Magically Stop?

quotingquiverfull

by Rick Thomas at Rick Thomas.net - Should I Count My Mean Husband More Significant Than I Count Myself?Editor's note: This is one of those crazy-making pieces of illogic that set women up for abuse in Quiverfull Evangelical Christianity, the magic formula of being humble enough, Godly enough, pure-minded enough, good enough that it will stop the abuse. Wake up and smell the coffee, Church, humility and humbleness will NEVER stop an abuser who is determined to hurt you. There are piles of dead or battered women who tried just this advice and still got beaten. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 3 – Every Woman A Jezebel?

quotingquiverfull

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - The Jezebel ProfileEditor's note: Debi doesn't say what to do if you are married to a man that shirks his responsibilities, forcing the wife to take over everything. But I'm pretty sure Debi would never fault the man, always calling the wife a Jezebel type. Remember, if Debi's not name calling and blaming a woman she's not happy. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Are Women in Law Enforcement Wrong?

quotingquiverfull

by John Piper from Ask Pastor John at Desiring God - Should Women Be Police Officers?Editor's note: He never really answers the defining question. Instead he tells the same tale he did a few weeks earlier about women civil engineers and direct/indirect command so I left out that part since it's an almost word for word exact same thing he already said. Instead here's his definitions of manhood and womanhood as they are in the home and workplace. It's still confusing, sounding like he's ready to say women should not be officers of the law but waffling around it instead of honestly saying what he thinks. What do you think? … [Read more...]

vyckieblogger

by Vyckie Garrison NLQ Founder and published at Raw Story Vyckie Garrison was once a minor celebrity in the Quiverfull Movement, made famous by TV’s Duggar family. As a devout, Bible-believing Christian and the mother of seven homeschooled children, Garrison spent 16 years, with her husband, publishing a newspaper for families on a similar path. Today, via a website called No Longer Quivering, she publishes resources for women leaving the movement. Surprise, surprise: Josh Duggar had a couple paid Ashley Madison accounts during the same years he worked as executive director of FRC Action, the political arm of Family Research Council’s “traditional family values” organization. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – A Woman’s Submission Determines Her Husband’s Success?

quotingquiverfull

by Lori Alexander of Always Learning - Are You Preventing Your Husband's Success?Editor's note: I believe what Mrs. Alexander is saying here about rejecting possible employees based upon how submissive their wives are violates national labor law. Seems like this would fall under the protections in place to keep employers discriminating against potential employees based on religion and/or sex. She should be careful not to post her reasoning for rejecting candidates online like this where anyone can see it and use it against her in court. Either way, the idea of a wife's submission being key to the success or failure of his career is laughable at best.  There are careers where the ability … [Read more...]

Preparing To Be A Help Meet: Part Five – Fleas

WhenCowsKidsCollide

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideLast bit on Patricia.... That brings us to Lesson Three. In the back of my mind I began to wonder if the fleas might be God's way of getting my attention concerning my lack of honor toward my husband. But I reasoned that at this point the flea thing might still, maybe, be a happenstance-just a fluke. I agree with you, Patricia. The flea incidents were random and not divine punishment. … [Read more...]
